Where do you find all this cool stuff and how can you possibly part with it? TOP
I enjoy visiting estate auctions and flea markets, and I'm glad to offer my wonderful finds to you. My interest obviously leans toward vintage jewelry and handbags. However, if something unusual catches my eye, you never know what I might come up with! I only collect things that are fashionable and in superb condition that I am willing to use myself. And, I am happy to offer my collection to you! Whenever someone buys from my collection, I know we share the same great taste. ;-)
What about fakes and reproductions? TOP
I spend a great deal of time researching my collection to avoid reproductions and fakes. It is of the utmost importance that I maintain my reputation as a seller with high standards of accuracy and integrity.
How long have you been in business and do you have any references? TOP
Internet commerce can be a little tricky at times, so it's good to know the professional qualifications of the person you are dealing with. I've been a seller on ebay for over 5 years - originally as sunnydaycollectibles and recently as sunny*day*vintage. I've completed over 1,000 transactions with 100% Positive Feedback (little hurray)!

I am a proud member of the Discovering Juliana Jewelry Group.

Who/What is Sunny Day Vintage? TOP
There really is a "Sunny." My 20 year old daughter, Sunny, is the inspiration for Sunny Day Vintage and is an established collector in her own right. I wish I knew at her age what she knows about vintage jewelry!
